's super pac started a $2.6 million ad campaign in virginia. so here again, citizens united working its way into the campaign season in the most dishonorable way. >> let's make clear what they are trying to do in virginia and in some other areas that have a lot of military. both the democrats and republicans agreed to this so-called sequestration, where if there weren't cuts in the budget, then there would be steep automatic cuts in both domestic and defense spending. that's not actually going to happen, but what has happened is that people like paul ryan, who voted in favor of this sequestration, are now trying to make it seem as if it's president obama and president obama alone without them who favor these draconian cuts in the defense budget. so they are running ads trying to make it seem as if president obama wants to strip our national defense. it's just another example of their desperation in making up stories and lies in order to try to win the election. >> great to have you with us. >>> coming up, conservatives are starting to jump ship after a really bad two weeks for mitt romney.
ought to be running in ohio and florida like he's running for governor and running in virginia like he's running for sheriff." good idea, but that's just not mitt. romney's super pac founder karl rove wasn't so crazy about the 47% comment either. his comment was, "a lot of people who get a social security check paid into that their entire lives and they're plenty wired up about the deficit. and there's lots of people getting an unemployment check who would love to have a job. so you've got to be careful about that number." clearly, it's having an impact. and conservative columnist peggy noonan wrote, "it's time to admit the romney campaign is an incompetent one. an intervention is in order. mitt, this isn't working." "the new york times" reported on a gloomy and openly frustrated mood aboard the romney plane. one staffer said the campaign was turning into a vulgar, unprintable, phrase. these republicans, they know how devastating mitt romney's comments have been. the comments look even worse after watching a 1962 video, featuring mitt romney's mother talking about her husband when she
and i'm not responsible for the statements of mitt romney. virginia senate hopeful george allen was forced to distance himself from romney during a senate debate today. >> you think nearly half the country see themselves as victims because they're too dedepende dedependent -- >> i look for positively at the people of have have. >> would you disagree with governor romney on this point? >> i have my own point of view. my point of view is the people of america still believe in the american dream. >> the debate questions might have spooked republican senator scott brown. brown had a scheduled debate with elizabeth warren in massachusetts tonight but all of a sudden claimed he just couldn't make it to the debate because of senate vote in washington. bottom line is, the people have sent me down here to do my job and that's to vote. well, senate majority leader harry reid came to brown's rescue by canceling all further voting for the day. >> mr. president, we've had to stall here for several days now, and i want to make sure that one of senators who wanted to go to a debate would be ab
of the government of virginia or the the government of new york. so teachers have been reduced at the state level. federal employees and the federal government is enormously bigger under obama and he's disingenuous, playing games and he ought to be ashamed of himself. >> so senator rand paul is the one ought to be ashamed of himself. he's the one playing games with numbers. apparently his figure of 143,000 does not include federal postal workers. progress reports that if you include federal postal workers, federal employment only went up by 27,000 between december of 2008 and right now. an increase of about 1%. senator rand paul has one thing right. president obama shouldn't take credit for state and local layoffs, which includes hundreds of thousands of school teachers. republicans like rand paul should be blamed for not passing the american jobs act, which would have extended much-needed aid to state and local governments and stimulated the economy. tonight in our survey, i asked does mitt romney have a coherent message for voters? 4% of you say yes. 96% of you say no. >>> coming up, chicago pu
bachmann, bob mcdonald of virginia, and rick santorum. santorum pointed out, with pride i might add, that a true values voter never lets facts or information e get in the way of their gut instincts. >> we'll never have the media on our side, ever in this country. we will never have the elite, smart people on our side because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. >> right wing pundit gary bower riled up the crowd urging them to get out and vote. >> there will be a lot of people to vote for the president. there's a lot of people around america who depend on checks from their fellow taxpayers being in the mailbox every day. they will turn out in massive numbers. my prediction is after all the votes are counted, even the dead votes of democrats in chicago, detroit and cleveland, i predict that we will win. that this national nightmare will be over. >> let's turn to barry lynn, executive director of americans united for separation of church and state, who obviously was at that conference as an observer, not a participant, i might add. what does this tell us abou
at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, u know what? it's time foa neecon ioti. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> this is a new line in the president's campaign speech. it's not simply a call for policies and programs to support the middle class. it's a contrast with his opnent. thcontst ion fl display in another ad using mitt romney's own words. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believes government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they're entitled to health care, foo houng, u nat. they'll vote for the president no matter what. my job is not to worry about these people. >> one of mitt romney's central arguments of the campaign is presidenobama just has not created jobs. >> wn cae ci that have not created the jobs america needs, then you know it's time to choose a new leader, get a new coach. get america growi
punches yet at mitt romney over these comments. the president told a virginia crowd what it would mean for them if mitt romney were elected president. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims. who think that they're not interested in taking responsibility for their own lives. i don't see a lot of victims in this crowd today. i see hard working virginians. >> the president made sure to emphasize hard work. it's a contrast to comments from the romney video, where the candidate claimed the economy will suddenly improve if he is elected president without romney lifting a finger. >> if we win on november of 6th, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. and we'll see capital cop back and without even doing anything, we may get a boost in the economy. >> a lot has been made about the people who are in the 47% of americans mitt romney was talking about. president obama painted a picture of exactly who those 47% are. >> some of you may be students trying to work your way through college. some of you m
